After losing all four of its coaches when Hurricane Sandy
hit the east coast in October, New York City’s Golden Age Adventure Travel added its second MCI
J4500 to help rebuild its fleet.
Golden Age’s new J4500 has power outlets at every seat and three-point seat belts, along with standard model features including electronic stability control, tire-pressure monitoring and a fire-suppression system.
MCI redesigned the model for 2013, giving it a taller look and stylish LED headlights. It also features more than 30 improvements, including brushless motors and an optimized, more fuel-efficient powertrain that can achieve nine miles per gallon at highways speeds.
Additionally, Washington, D.C.’s D.C. Trails added a new 2013 MCI J4500 coach.
The operator’s new wheelchair-lift-equipped MCI J4500 comes with the latest EPA-compliant clean-diesel engine technology that uses ultra-low sulfur diesel for near-zero emissions.
The J4500 also features a lighter, high-efficiency cooling system and optimized axle ratios to improve fuel economy. Standard safety features include Electronic Stability Control that assists the driver in critical situations; a tire-pressure monitoring system that warns of low pressure, high tire temperatures or tire failure; and an Amerex fire-suppression system. Options include side view and back-up cameras.
Meanwhile, passengers enjoy plush seating for 54 with three-point seat belts, cup holders, foot rests, six 15-inch LCD monitors, 110-volt power outlets at each seat and Wi-Fi connectivity.
